Out of Hours Notice - Northbourne Avenue, between Mouat Street and the Barton Highway 13 – 23 March 2018

Northbourne Avenue northbound, adjacent to Netball ACT, requires significant utilities related works ahead of pending rail track slab laying. Specifically this involves storm water drainage installation and conduit installation across the roadway at Mouat Street Intersections.

Works Schedule:
Additional out-of-hours works are scheduled to occur from 8:00pm Tuesday 13 March to 6:00am Friday 23 March 2018. Out of hours works will not occur on Friday and Saturday nights.

Traffic changes:

  • Traffic travelling northbound and southbound on Northbourne Avenue will be unaffected during the day

  • Northbound traffic diverted at the Mouat-Antill and Northbourne Avenue intersection at night

  • Detours will be in place, via Antill Street, to divert traffic and buses (see map overleaf)

Traffic management will be in place and highly visible throughout the works, including signage and personnel.

Additional Information:
The equipment to be used includes excavators, hydrovac trucks, a plate compactor, a digger, light vehicles and trucks.  Due to the nature of the work, some of the activities will be noisy. The project team will limit these impacts wherever possible by reducing the number of machines operating at the same time and turning off equipment when not in use. Non-tonal reversing beepers will be used and workers will be instructed to keep noise to a minimum.
